The Republican noise machine has been busy the last few days, arguing, among other nuttiness, that:
- Jews are penny pinchers (but they meant that as a compliment)
- Inter racial marriage is bad for children and shouldn’t happen (why would anyone disagree??!!)
- It’s fun to joke about shooting “tree hugging liberals” in the same area of Mississippi where civil rights workers were murdered for the crime of being liberal (hey, lighten up — it’s all in good fun)
As of this writing, only the geniuses responsible for the calling Jews penny pinchers have apoligized — if anyone was offended. A fake non apology; but at least they went through the motions.
The justice who refuses to perform inter racial marriages and the shooting liberals is funny Republican representative are defiant and just don’t see how anyone could have a problem with what they’ve said and done.
It’s classic bigotry — they are so deep into prejudice, racism and hatred that they literally cannot imagine how anyone could see the world differently than they do.
It’s just this kind of crack political messaging that will propel the Republicans back into power on a wave of righteous, old, southern, white, conservative protestant indignation and determination to take “their” country back.
